About Mike & Monica DiVerde
We fell in love with Maui years ago when we first visited the island for a weekend get-away while being stationed with the U.S. Marine Corps on the island of Oahu. We visited the other Hawaiian islands, and Maui easily became our favorite. Our dream to own a home-away-from-home has come true. We are thrilled to have you for our guests!

Why Mike & Monica DiVerde chose Kihei
Having vacationed several times on Maui, we love South Kihei! Location! Location! Location! Kamaole Sands is within walking distance to beaches, shopping, restaurants, and the Kihei boat ramp where many snorkeling/scuba excursions depart from. The grounds are meticulously landscaped, offering everything you would expect from a first-class resort.
What makes this Condo unique
The area offers World-class beaches, amazing snorkeling/scuba diving, surfing, boogie boarding, and more. South Kihei is known for its sunnier, dryer year-round climate. Whale watching season runs from November through mid-May.

Reasonable stay, nice clean condo
We had a nice time at this condo in Kamaole Sands. It was very clean and ready for us. Sadly, no coffee in the kitchen but we bought some at Foodland with our new discount card. It was nice to have the washer/dryer available for use. The only short-comings were that there is no view of the water or beach from here (it’s on the first floor) and that opening the windows in the bedroom and using the fan kept us cool and comfortable at night (worked better than the AC), but let in an ENORMOUS amount of noise from the parking lot on Friday night. Saturday night was completely quiet but rainy; I don’t know why the difference in noise level was so extreme. The design of all these units means that if you are renting one located on one of the blocks near the outside that cars use as a thoroughfare, there will be a lot of noise from people parking, talking, car doors slamming, etc. I imagine that if you are located along one of the “interior corridors” that is not a through street, it is less noticeable. On a positive note, the pools are well-maintained and very nice, the orchids planted along the walkway are AMAZING, the location of these condos is nice, right across from Kamaole Beach Park III, the unit was clean and everything worked as advertised.
Mahalo for your review, Margaret! Glad to hear that you had an enjoyable stay - we know you were exploring many locations in Hawaii. We wish we could have provided an ocean view but since we are a ground floor unit (advertised as such with a garden view), perhaps you missed that in our listing description. It also sounds like you encountered an especially busy evening during one of the two nights you stayed. The resort does enforce strict quiet hours so we're sorry to hear things we're a little nosier during your stay. Thank you again for taking time to submit a review. - Mike & Monica
Comfortable and tidy, great south Kihei location
Our family of four enjoyed our stay in Mike and Monica's Kamaole Sands ground floor condo. An end unit in the back of the complex, the condo is right next to the parking lot which is great for loading/unloading gear (bedroom is in back, too, which means that an open window at night does allow for sound from parking area which is minimal but exists). Kamaole Sands is a nice complex with immaculate grounds, a very friendly and helpful staff, and a well kept pool area which includes a ping pong table, foosball and free library. The proximity to Kamaole II and III beaches is great - snorkeling when the water is calm, boogie boarding when the water is rougher, tide pool exploration and hours of play in the sand with beach toys from the condo. We also appreciated the use of umbrellas, beach chairs and cooler. The condo was tidy and comfortable. Our young daughters slept well on the fold out couch, although I would not recommend it for an adult (mattress falls to middle). My husband liked the firm king mattress in the bedroom. The condo kept cool enough with cross breezes and so we rarely utilized the air conditioning (AC was on a 2 hour timer). We were able to do simple food preparation with the dishes, pots and utensils provided. Kitchen also had salt, pepper, spice rack and a small amount of olive oil. Refrigerator is emptied between guests (except for some bottled water). We were comfortable and happy with our stay. Mike and Monica were easy to communicate with and have a nice spot!
The condo was clean and well equipped with everything we needed, to include beach equipment. The location of the bottom corner unit had less privacy than we prefer, as it was right by the sidewalk leading to the pool. Passers by always find it necessary to look your way. The large bedroom window has beautiful shutters which run the length of the room. However since that window runs parallel to the sidewalk leading to all the other units we had to keep them closed most of the time, again to preserve our privacy. The timers on the air conditioning units were inconvenient. While we understand the desire to save energy, we have to wonder if there might be a better solution. The pool was small and crowded. Mike and Monica were gracious and attentive hosts. Many guests would probably find the property suitable for their needs. It just wasn’t the best fit for us.
Thank you for your feedback. We’re happy that you found our condo clean & well equipped. These are high priorities for us to ensure guests have an enjoyable stay! Your 2-star rating is confusing…we have stayed in what we would define as a 2-star unit and do not agree nor believe this is a fair rating for our condo. Since you communicated to us earlier that the rain-filled week put a damper on your vacation, perhaps this impacted your overall experience, which is understandable. We disagree that the pool is small. In fact, compared to other Kihei & even exclusive Wailea resorts, the pool is one of the largest in the area, as are the grounds/BBQ areas that front the property. Many guests prefer our end unit location because of its privacy & convenient walk to the pool area & parking spot which is located directly in front of our unit. We’re glad you appreciated our high-quality shutters. We have NEVER felt that our privacy was compromised and have actually tested this after installing them. They have a top-bottom option to adjust slats and were purposely selected so guests could allow light & sun to filter into the room while still maintaining privacy. All units have a parallel sidewalk. Our end unit is away from the elevators & experiences less foot traffic than most. We hope your next visit offers better weather, as rainy weeks are rare in South Maui, and that you find something to meet your individual needs. We enjoyed having you & appreciate the care you extended to our property! -Mike & Monica
Very satisfied with both the unit and the property
The unit is clean, comfortable, well equipped and everything worked as expected. The owners and the local contact are well organized and easy to deal with.
The overall property is well maintained. The pool is great with lots of lounge chairs and the numerous BBQ areas are convenient and very clean. Didn't use the tennis courts but they look in very good shape.
The location in Kihei has great beach access and lots of services are within easy walking distance.
It was a pleasure to have both of you as guests for an extended stay. We appreciate the positive feedback, particularly that you were pleased with the cleanliness of our condo and that it was well-equipped. We would love to have you stay with us again on your next Maui trip! -Mahalo, Mike & Monica
Condo unit was as advertised. Our second stay at Kamaole Sands and the condo grounds and atmosphere at the resort is excellent. Condo is very clean, fully functioning AC units in bedroom and living room, parking just outside your door, good quality beach chairs, much needed umbrellas for the beach, beach towels and plenty kitchenware items. There were also plenty of beach toys if you have have young children or teens. Barbecue pits are clean with overhead protection and picnic tables. We had some great barbecue meals with our travel friends who stayed in the same condo building. Location is ideal. Plenty of beaches and snorkelling nearby. Owners are very organized and a pleasure to work with. Maui is our favourite island. We will definitely stay at this unit again. Hope this review is helpful to fellow travellers.
Your awesome review put a big smile on our faces! Thanks for pointing out so many things you liked about our condo & the resort property. We enjoyed having you as guests and are glad to read that you plan to return! We know life is busy so many thanks again for taking the time to submit a review. We appreciate it very much!
Everything was nice and clean.
A five star review says it all...thanks Justin! Thank you also for taking such great care of our condo in paradise. We hope you'll return!
Our condo is located in sunny South Kihei directly across the street from beautiful Kamaole Beach III - named as one of Maui's best beaches by Maui Magazine in its July/August 2015 issue! We are minutes from many of the best beaches on Maui and the Wailea/Makena resort community.
